Winners of the 2018 Diversity Contest: Through Another’s Eyes

The theme for the 2018 Diversity Contest was Through Another’s Eyes. Students were asked to engage in an experience that represented a different view than their own and then express that experience through writing, art or performance.

Projects were accepted in two areas: (1) written expression, (2) arts and performance.
